TEHRAN (XINHUA) – The Iranian government yesterday said the international talks in Vienna aimed at reviving the 2015 Iranian nuclear deal have not reached a stalemate, semi-official Fars news agency reported.
“The negotiations have reached a stage where decisions must be made about a few number of key issues, and that requires the necessary carefulness, meticulousness and time,” the spokesman for Iran’s government Ali Rabiee said in his weekly press conference in Tehran.
On Monday, Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister and top nuclear negotiator Abbas Araqchi said to Iran’s state TV on the sidelines of the talks that negotiations are very complex, and only issues where there are “obvious differences” were being discussed.
Araqchi said that “good progress” has been made.
Nevertheless, the delegations might need to return to their capitals once more for new consultations, he added.
